Man hit by car while riding horse in Martin

A man who was riding his horse when he was struck by a car says he's just lucky to be alive.

James Chaffins and his son were riding their horses along Rt. 1210 in Martin yesterday, which is not out of the ordinary for the region; there are plenty of signs warning drivers to look out for horse riders alongside the road. For one driver, that simply wasn't enough of a warning when they hit James while he was riding his horse, Flicka.

Police do have a suspect and are actively investigating the incident but have not released any names at this time..
